Anita Rogers Gallery is thrilled to present Women’s Art Doesn’t End at the Outer Labia, an exhibition of work by British-Israeli artist Yishay Garbasz. The exhibition will be on view May 4 through June 18.

While the interdisciplinary artist has been creating and exhibiting work internationally, and giving voice to marginalized viewpoints, for over two decades, this will be the artist’s debut exhibition with Anita Rogers Gallery. The gallery seeks to introduce new viewers to Garbasz’s varied bodies of work and acquaint them with themes she visits frequently in her work, including gender, trauma, and memory. This exhibition will include selections from her Bearing Witness projects, and from series that explore her personal narrative, history, and experiences. Photographs on view will document locations that have been home to trauma and violence – although they don’t always immediately reveal this history upon first look – including lines of defense in warring countries, and images of Japan’s Fukushima Prefecture, the site of the second most catastrophic nuclear disaster in history (second only to Chernobyl). Other works explore the experiences of gender and identity, including the pointed, playful, and personal ‘Eat Me Damien’ piece, which displays Garbasz’s testicles, removed during a gender affirmation surgery, preserved in formaldehyde. Taken all together, the works highlight the artist’s long-term goal to shine light on people, places, and memories that are usually left in the dark, too often overlooked, and to present them with clarity, with compassion, and with pride.
